Mr WHITE - In the British Broadcasting Corporation's broadcasts of overseas news, it is always stated that the broadcasts are free. The Australian Broadcasting Commission, on the other hand, in its announcements over the national network, always states that the British Broadcasting Corporation's news is included "by courtesy of -the Australian Associated Press." I wish to know whether any payment is made by the Australian Broadcasting Commission to the Australian Associated Press for news which is, apparently, free to the rest of the world? I ask the Minister for Information to explain the situation.
